Abstract: Population assessments of the juvenile salmonids in the Corrib System are being made as part of the overall management plan for the Galway Fishery. In 1980 the first of a series of reports which will be issued annually gave information on the juvenile stocks and on the state of the spawning and nursery tributaries during 1979. Details of the methods used and some background on each of the tributaries were presented. Chemical and biological data on water quality along with numbers, size, age and survival of both salmon and trout are given in Fishery Leaflet 103. During 1979 eight tributaries were surveyed and in two cases upstream and downstream reaches were examined. In 1980 the effort in terms of personnel and equipment was increased but the high rainfall during the period of work, from mid-July to mid-September, meant that only two further stations were studied, one on the Dalgan river and the other on the Balinbrack river. The methods used and the scope of the work were identical in 1979 and 1980. In these assessments the emphasis is on salmon type tributaries and salmon type habitats within these tributaries so that trout numbers could be expected to be low.
